When I go to

http://www.archive.org/create/

and hover over the "Share" button, all I get is the pop-up that says "Upload books, video, images, and audio that you have the right to share. Press the [Share] button above to select file(s)." I tried going (again) to the URL I included, and it's a blank page. When I was at the URL I included before (I've since closed the tab down), refreshing it brought up a message asking if I wanted to re-submit the stuff that was submitted before, and I guess that stuff is what hung it up.

Does this mean I have to start again/over? I can do that, but I was hoping I could just pick up where I left off.

Thanks,
Brad

If you got the message about whether you want to re-submit what you'd already uploaded, that's what you wanted. Try re-visiting that page again?

I tried refreshing with and without re-submitting, and still got the error. Going to the page "cold" gave me an empty/blank page. I re-started completely, re-transferred/Shared the files (including setting the identifier fields), and it worked fine this time.

Well, I almost worked it fine. I goofed in the setting of the venue and city fields, which ended up giving the item a title of "The Back-Talk Organ Trio Live at Le Petit Chicago on 2010-09-04" instead of "The Back-Talk Organ Trio Live at The Rainbow Bistro on 2010-09-04". I edited the item to correct what I could, and re-derived the tracks, and it all seems good, except for the title, as the item is displayed at

Is the title something only an admin can change? If so, I'd be very thankful if it could be done.

Aloha,
Brad

Looks ok to me now...sometimes it just takes a few hours for the display to catch up to the metadata changes you've made. It's quickest on the item page itself, slower on search results or links to those pages which may come from cached content elsewhere.
